A tie with two names such as Madrid and Liverpool always promises a show, and despite the fact that neither of the two clubs is signing their best campaign, their squads and their history guarantee a high-flying clash. Madrid comes to the first leg upset by the loss of Sergio Ramos after his injury during the Spanish training camp, but confident of being able to knock out Liverpool if his core works well and if Benzema maintains the level he is showing this season.
Liverpool has also raised doubts, but with their options to revalidate the Premier League evaporated, the Champions League is the great hope of Klopp’s. Diogo Jota has returned to his idyll with the goal in the national team break with Portugal, while Salah and Mané are capable of knocking down anyone. We will see if their irregular defensive consistency does not play a trick on them again at Di Stéfano.
